arrest me, I'm yours

arrest me, I'm yours

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto


arrest me, I'm yours

 

 

total anarchy,

feelings ablaze

vehicles of the heart overturned

my eyes, windows smashed

as you pillage my soul

till there is nothing left of me to give

 

a riotous rendition of what once

was me,

I cannot police my emotions

you have rendered my love helpless

cuff me, bring me in

any sentence you give

 

it is a disturbance

to which I will gladly

accustom...

with so much national unrest, flash anger and apparent chaos, maybe the sensible thing is to hand oneself in and hope to be confined in a deep bunker somewhere with thick walls and enough supplies to last until it all blows over..

You walked a thin line, here, Brother Jake.
However, it appears to me, you pulled it off, rather nicely.
Creativity, truthfulness and understated humor are a potent trio.
Great read!

Oh my, this is so good. The recent troubles are certainly giving you some inspiration. Sadly many will relate to this one. When they reach the point that they will say and do anything to restore some peace and calm. The fighting has just knocked the stuffing out of them and they are at their wits end. Great writing. You my dear friend are on fire.

thank you for your very kind review, Chris,

a surrendering to
love at all costs to
quell the quiet riot
of uncontrolled emotions
stirring within..so true
we cannot police our feelings
when they want to be freed

nice work

Your words join many thoughts here Jacob, with a pleading heart playing solo throughout.
The abandon of shouting for her attention vies with the chaos surrounding us, while the American scream sax keeps an accompanying rhythm.
But to the trained ear, they are all slightly out of synch, adding to the move from music to just noise.
Somethings gotta give, as tensions rise and remembering normal takes a little longer, day to day.
Now I really want to hear the music and see the movie playout too.
I hope it has a happy ending 😀

yes, definitely, something has to give...
it's just another movie with a sequel.

awwww this is what love does to you. When the feeling becomes more fierce, you become a culprit of love. Irony is, such culprits would like to get arrested so they can feel more fascinated closely and continue committing sweet crimes through imagination and feelings. This poetry brought a smile to my face :D

J., while I can see this as deeply personal from my own experience, I also see our country personified here. I believe this is how millions of Americans feel at this moment. We want to cry, shout and sometimes fold in submission, giving in to the crowd or weight of our own despair. Not sure what you had in mind when you wrote this one, but it's a timely piece for me.
